along with steve wood and mandy drury. thank you for joining us. let me get your take, steve. on the jobs report on friday, what should we expect? >> i think it's going to come in lighter than the adp. the adp has been a poor indicator of the jobs number. i think there's a reason the fed gave us qe-3, because they saw the softness in the labor market. i think it could come in a little on the weak side. more importantly, the official jobs number is the revisions backwards. they've been going back through previous months and knocking down those numbers. i think i wouldn't be surprised if it came in a little soft. >> kate, do you agree with that? if so, is this priced into the market? >> yes, absolutely priced in, maria. great question. what they're going to expect is for it to be terrible. if it isn't terrible, we'll see a rally. what matters most to this market is earnings. we're in pre-earnings disappointment season where we're going to float a little bit until earnings come out. we've seen a friend where earnings have beat expectations. we've gone down to earnings, earnings beat

about what triggered the price rise. as steve kroft reported in 2009, many people believe it had more to do with wall street speculation than with oil companies. >> to understand what happened to the price of oil, you first have to understand the way it's traded. for years, it's been bought and sold on something called the commodities futures market. here at the new york mercantile exchange, it's traded alongside cotton and coffee, copper and steel by brokers who buy and sell contracts to deliver those goods at a certain price at some date in the future. it was created so that farmers could gauge what their unharvested crops would be worth months in advance, so that factories could lock in the best price for raw materials and airlines could manage their fuel costs. but in late 2007, that market started to behave erratically. and when oil doubled to more than $147 a barrel, no one was more suspicious than dan gilligan. >> we have to make sure that the futures market is an honest market. >> as the president of the petroleum marketers association, he represents more than 8,000 retail and
